    Zoology/Animal Health

Measurement systems for efficacy testing on human skin also find their place for measuring on animals. Bioengineering methods are used to do efficacy testing on care, nutrition, pharmaceuticals and drugs for animals. Investigating skin and hair diseases in animals is another wide field. There are several studies from different applications where the C+K devices have been used in zoology/animal health.

Meibometer® MB 560

Meibometer® MB 560

Interesting Device to Measure the Lacrimal Fluid's Lipid Content
Lipids produced by the Meibomian glands keep the moisture of the tear fluid, thereby prevent the eyes from drying and keep them clear with comfortable vision. The typical dry eye problem is caused when the lipid production at the Meibomian glands is disrupted. The tear film becomes destabilized and can break down quickly, creating dry spots on the surface of the eyes. The Meibometer® is the first and only measurement tool worldwide offering an interesting and unique approach to assess this deficiency.
